    Our stupid IB coordinator forced us to submit our extended essays to turnitin.com to check for plagiarism. But the problem is that now our essays are part of the turnitin.com database, so when i submit my EE again it shows that its 100% copied compared to the initial 2% which resulted from me copying the following: " the partial pressure of oxygen is "

    Back to the point... do the IBO use turnitin??? Our IT director was not able to delete our essays from the database... so if the IBO use this site... we are kinda screwed.

    Given the site stores what you submit for comparaison, it will mean that is an unreliable source for the IBO to use. Also your name probably is also on the work there, so when i submit your EE it will say 100% similiar to Manaf or your real name I hope. I do not believe the IBO uses such sites, they probably use something much more secret, futile, advanced, expensive. After all if they make a mistake the law suits you can make on them will have dire results for the organization and the trust of it around the world. Sleep well and focus on the exams. EE is over and I must say, im not sure if it was good to have the deadline now. Our deadline for the EE was march the 6th i think and the everything else deadline was 29th of march. But Im trailing of topic here lol. Dont worry be happy and stay cool, even though i dont seem to manage to do any of the 3 things above
